« Part 17: WE PASSED FINAL INSPECTION !! Part 18 of Finally, My Dream Shop series no next part

I’ve been hanging insulation and putting up OSB behind where the Cyclone will hang. We haven’t put the cone up yet because it would make it difficult to finish the wall behind. So tomorrow we’ll finish the cyclone and I’ll show pics…Mike and I decided we would brag on our professional job and offer to install anyone’s for the price of a plane ticket and a thousand dollars, plus a liberal expense account !! It has been a bear because of the way we hung it, but we are both happy with the results. We did plug it in once for a very short burst and it blew crud all over the shop and in our eyes….but it worked….and that’s what we wanted to know.

I hit the edge of my thumb with a hammer and hope I don’t loose my nail…..kinda embarrassing for a seasoned woodworker !! Maybe for Christmas I’ll get a nail gun, or better yet, maybe someone will finish the walls of the shop for me ~

I was going to put Christmas lights on the construction privy at the end of the driveway, but they removed it the morning I had planned the endeavor…...would have been funny I think. A big wreath and some flashing lights…...maybe it is just my warped sense of humor….probably would have been fined by the Homeowner’s Association…...

The construction guys are to appear again tomorrow to finish up all odds and ends and collect the remaining $4,000.00 that I owe. They can’t fool me….it’s really about getting the money…....I ought to serve egg nog to celebrate the final inspection. They were a great crew and a fine company. I have a defective “picker” so I was very surprised to be pleased with the company I chose. Maybe my defective “picker” only applies to love relationships!! Been nice if it had been the other way around !

That’s all for now….maybe some pics soon.

Make them help you hang the CURTAINS!

Is the new door in. Don’t pay until it’s hung.

Hey Calgirl,

I love that name. Phones are one of the responsibilities I had in the Navy and a couple of jobs after. I understand your excitement over finally getting your shop. I just built mine and am still hanging OSB and insulating. Looking forward to the pics. Congratulations!
